Cool pics. I remember complaining about that venue, but I had some great times at Polaris.

So remind me why it closed? Was it because people complained about the noise or $$ ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germain_Amphitheater

"According to The Columbus Dispatch,[1] the rising real estate values is the main reason behind the sale and also speculates competition from other similarly sized venues such as Nationwide Arena, Value City Arena, Columbus Crew Stadium, and Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in the area may have contributed to the decline the in number of shows hosted by Germain Amphitheater in recent years. In 2007, only nine shows were scheduled, the least number of shows at Germain since it opened. Following the 2007 concert season the facility and property were auctioned for sale but received no bids from buyers."
